Pearlescent Effect Pigments

Pearlescent effects are achieved through the reflection, refraction, and transmission of light between a mineral substrate and metal oxide. Mineral substrates used are food grade mica or silica. Metal oxides are generated in the process from the oxidation of titanium and/or iron salts. Modifications to the particle size, thickness, substrates, and salts allow us to offer a wide range of vibrant and elegant options.
